      I was wondering the same thing so I'm curious to see what others say - Also, I haven't seen a DIY for replacing ROTORS. Anybody have a link to something that may show that? And/or anything with Torque specs for tightening everything back up?

      Usually rotors are held in place with huge philips screws - hence the necessary torque is "good-n-tight"

      OEM

      Sometimes, I feel like Volvo is ungrateful to all of us, the loyal Volvo customers and the brand fans. It's been more than two years, I'm reading online about their brakes' defects and faulty brake system. So many complaints about the rotors/pads(OEM) and Volvo didn't even care to make a statement regarding the manufacturer' issue. Forget about recall and fixing it for free. When we try manage our life well, we become angry and frustrated as things don't go as intended, and our bad mood is a sign showing we were not able to resolve the conflict. That's what happened to me...few weeks ago, I woke up at 6 in the morning with mood as fragile as bricks, went online and bought myself full rotors/pads set. I know, it's not Urus, but trust me, I never regretted my decision.

      Please don't judge me...I knew if I did my homework I'll found those from the photos way cheaper but as I said, I was very upset and didn't care anymore.

      Here're the zinc rotors and the total I paid. Once again guys, do not pay attention to the price. I'm 100% sure you'll find a better ones...

      SERIOUSLY.

      And you add the greedy stealerships to that equation for an utter s**tshow. Witness: a couple of weeks ago, I go in for my 30K service. SA prints "1mm" left on rear brakes, must replace. I go home, look at the outboard pad and it looks 2mm+. Knowing innner pads may wear more severely, I order (aftermarket, just like you) rear pads. Last night I went to install (no need for 9v battery or anything, btw) rear pads and lo-n-behold, inner pads have 2mm+ per caliper as well. It's like the techs didn't bother measuring at all and are in cahoots with the service writers to upsell, upsell, upsell a whopping $400+ brake pad job.

      I have NO solution on how to "resolve the conflict" we have w/ these lying sacks of volvo dealers. It's beyond frustrating and now I have to sit on brake pads like a chump for several more months.
